We bring the nation together through sport to get active, raise money and change lives


Sonic Relief is back with a bang! Following the unexpected success of last year’s first campaign, Sonic Relief 2010 aims to be bigger, better, and more successful!

This year’s campaign aims to raise money for the biennial Sport Relief charity event from Comic Relief, which brings together the worlds of sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world's poorest countries. You can find out more about Sport Relief by visiting

The basic premise of the campaign is still the same as last year – do something Sonic for money! Whether you want to draw a picture, sing a song, make a video... literally ANYTHING... then we want to see it! The possibilities are endless!

This year's theme is "something sporty" to coincide with the charity we are raising money for, but that's not to say you can't make it humorous too - as long as your submissions still have relevance to Sport Relief.

There is one fundamental change to this year though – due to the good ol’ recession, Shadzter and myself won’t be able to do what we did last year whereby a certain amount of money was donated for every submission. Instead, this time we ask if the people submitting could make a small donation along with their submission (only £1 or so will do!). It may seem a bit cheeky, but it’s for a good cause – and there’s something in it for you, too! Each paid submission will be entered into the contest for Best Sonic Relief Submission 2010, and our favourite will win a prize!

(It should be noted that donations are not compulsory, but you will not be entered into the contest if you do not donate)

Sonic Relief 2010 will also utilise JustGiving, a system which allows anyone to make a donation (of however much they wish) to our cause - and the money will go straight to Sport Relief! This enables you to do whatever you like to raise money for Sonic Relief – make a calendar, have a 'Day in Blue', participate in a fun run... literally anything! Raise some cash and then pass it on to us via JustGiving!

Alternatively you can just simply pledge some money via JustGiving. Whether you want to make a set donation no matter what or you want to follow a similar system to last year whereby a certain amount is donated based on how many submissions we receive... well, that's up to you! We're giving you every possible option you could ever want to raise money this year!

(You will need a credit or debit card to donate via JustGiving)

The closing date for submissions and donations will be midnight (GMT) on Sunday 21st March 2010 to coincide with the end of the Sport Relief Weekend
